A deaf and dumb youth was ''forced'' to undergo family planning operation within five months after his marriage, the Madhya Pradesh Assembly was told today.

Raising the issue through a calling attention notice, Mr Ramlakhan Sharma (CPI-M) said 32-year-old Heeralal Mehra, whose marriage took place in June this year, was sterilised compulsorily at a family planning camp at Sohagpur in Hoshangabad district in November.

''The inhuman act was done by the doctors in order to achieve the target'', he complained.

Denying forcible operation, Health Minister Ajay Bishnoi said the victim had inadvertently conveyed motivator health worker about having two children, but the health worker came to know about his marriage only after the operation.

Health worker Rajpal Choudhary had been suspended, Mr Bishnoi added.
